Lots of work accomplished in the garden today. Sun is shining and warm. Wonderful. I had this lovely companion in and out of different spaces all day:
The local plant sale season started this weekend. I was off before 7am to catch the Eaglecrest Garden Club Sale…always lots of wonderful little pieces of Garden club members gardens at fantastic prices…here’s the haul….
Then today I hit the road, again at 7am, to check out the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific’s Spring Sale…scored many more somewhat exotic lovelies.
After that, I wandered the gardens at the HCP….through a stunning woodland garden full of inspirational shade lovers:
Phew….what a day….feels good! Now…lots of planting to do!!!
It’s been sunny the last week, but nippy….hovering around 8C. Buds are forming, but nothing is rushing into bloom. Here’s a few early achievers!!
A few pix didn’t make it into the last post…
I found myself in Vancouver for 10 days working with my son on some health issues…the joy of the time away was walking to and fro in the Main/Cambie/12th-21st corridor. Lots of plant action beginning:
It’s March 12 now….it’s 14 degrees C and all is much, much better than February!! Lots of cleaning up in the garden the last week, lots of little blooms, lots of hope and promise!!
